So, as the title has pretty much summed up the feels that I’m feeling at the moment, somehow this has become a thing now. And I ask myself, “How the hell did this happen?! Have I really been excluded from my own Chinese pop culture that long now?” And the only answer I can come up with is yes. Yes I have.
So, after searching around the internet (as per usual) to find some new Chinese dramas to watch (cause I just have nothing better to do), I came across another blogger’s site and found that she had kindly subbed the song played within the MV linked below. For a translation of the song in English, click on the link provided: http://dramatictealeaves.wordpress.com/2013/11/03/song-translation-i-can-not-help-it-bu-bu-jing-qing-official-mv/
And what I say next is not a joke. For literally one minute, I was wondering why the hell this video had written the title of the drama wrong. It wasn’t until later that I realised that步步惊情 (Bu Bu Jing Qing) is actually the anticipated sequel to the 2011 Chinese drama 步步惊心 (Bu Bu Jing Xin), and that the story between Ruo Xi and the 4th Prince will continue in the present era…HOLY FUTURE SONS OF SHISUS, WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?
I am freaking out with both excitement and absolute embarrassment. Excitement because I can’t believe that they would continue the actual series (though with that ending…yep, people were bound to complain). Embarrassment because they’ve finished filming already; months ago. It only felt even worse when I asked my mum about it, and she replies “Yeah, it should have finished filming months ago”. I run back to my laptop and fancy enough, the wiki page says it finished filming in June 2013…how the hell did I not hear this???
However, what has really got to me is the whole fact that 步步惊心, almost 2 years on, can still affect me so. The love story between Ruo Xi and the 4th Prince is a story which still brings me heartache and sorrow simply through the thought of them, and now these evil directors will continue to throw my heart in a spin with a sequel? SERIOUSLY!!…I’ll still watch it regardless LOL
I seriously can not wait for this to be released, and from what I’m seeing within that MV above, BRING FORTH THE WATERWORKS! Thanks for reading guys, and honestly, did you guys know that this happened? No one told me anything, and I ended up finding out by myself anyways! *Sigh* So delayed…
